Follow these steps to transform mundane text into something worth looking at:
1. Select the text you want to apply WordArt formatting to.
The text can be anywhere in your presentation. For example, you can
apply WordArt formatting to a slide title or body text.
2. Click the Drawing Tools Format tab.
The Drawing Tools Format tab includes a WordArt Styles group, shown
in Figure 7-9. As you can see, this Ribbon group includes several
preconfigured WordArt styles as well as buttons that let you control the
text fill, outline style, and text effects such as shadows and glowing.
